FOREWORD 



' This is the 10th in a series of statistical summaries on 
Florida vegetable production. Through the joint efforts of 
the Florida Crop and Livestock Heporting division of the Agri- 
cultural I'arketiDg Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture 
and the Department of Agricultural Economics, Agricultural 
Experiment Stations, University of Florida, data are given on 
acreage, production, and value, with additional data on pro- 
duction and harvesting costs for specified areas. It is th3 
purpose of this publication to present a summary of the many 
reports that were issued currently during the season 1953-54, 
with historical data for comparative purposes. . 

We gratefully acknowledge our indebtedness to each person 
and organization contributing to the development of these data. 
Your cooperation makes these reports possible. With the ex- 
ception of the shipment information, the data contained herein 
are estimates and are based on reports by, and interviews with 
growers, shippers, marketing associations and organizations, 
seedsmen, railroad representatives, canners and other processors. 

i We further acknowledge the assistance extended by such 
agencies as the Agricultural Extension Service througn its 
County Agricultural Agents, the Federal-State Inspection and 
Karket News Services, the Florida State I-arketing Bureau and 
the Florida State iYarketing Board, the Agricultural Stabiliza- 
tion and Conservation Committee, the State Plant Board and 
other well informed sources. 

Much credit is due our clerical personnel for the painstak- 
ing work they have done in checking data, cutting stencils, 
mimeographing, and assembling this bulletin. 

It is our objective tcprovide growers, small and large, 
with timely crop information. We hope it has a leveling and 
stabilizing influence in minimizing exaggerations and counter- 
acting uhfound rumors. This volume is herewith submitted for 
your careful consideration and use as a source of statistical 
information. 



INDEX 



Each crop generally carries the following sequence of data by season: Name of. crop - 
Season; Acres for harvest hy Counties; Acreage, production and value - State summary; 
Acreage and production by counties and areas t 1953-54; Shipping data; Per acre costs and 
returns. Crops that harvest in more than one season are then combined in one total grouping 
classified as "All" and placed before the breakdown by seasonal groupings. Yellow pages are 
placed mainly as dividers betvreen crops with per acre cost and returns on or adjacent thereto.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



S EA S ONAL GROUPINGS - In order that competitive production within the State of Florida and the 
United States may be classified on a National basis under reasonably uniform groups, we have 
established a National pattern which is based on the most activ e harvesting periods. These 
major groups are WINTER , SPRING, SUMMER, and FALL. The' WJM l 4H group includes the months of 
January, February, and March; SPRING includes April, May, and June; SUMMER includes July, 
August, and September (Florida carries no official summer commercial crops); and FALL 
includes October, November, and December. These periods are not rigidly fixed and the har- 
vesting period for a particular grouping may extend over into the preceding or follo\iring 
group. However, in arranging our data vie have followed these groupings in so far as it is 
practical. For example, it has been considered practical to carry cabbage, caulif lower , 
escarole, lettuce, and strawberries as one season crops, designating them WINTER since the 
volume production is harvested gensrally during January, February, and March. Since some 
systematic order of grouping is necessary it is deerced best for all concerned to handle our 
classifications on a National basis even though they may not always agree with some local 
designations now in use. 



P LAIT TED A CREAGE - The definition for planted acreage is based on a "loss of crop" concept. 
"Estimates' of planted acres for any seas onal -grouping consist of acres for harvest (see next 
par.) during that particular seasonal group plus any acreage planted for harvest during the 
season, but which was lost or destroyed and. aTu not produce a crop in the season under con- 
sideration. If the acreage is lost and not replanted, it is counted as p lanted . If it is 
lost but replanted for harvest in the same season as the original acreage would have been 
harvested, the acreage replanted is not considered as additional acreage planted. However, 
if the acreage lost is replanted for" harvest in a later season, it is considered as planted 
for both seasons and as acres for harvest only for the latter season. 



A CRES FOR HARVEST - This is considered as being all acreage from which a crop could have been 
"Harvested had e"cohomic conditions (prices, available labor, etc.) warranted the harvest. It 
includes mature acreage on which the harvest was postponed or delayed too long due to economic 
reasons and the production lost thereby. Acreage which produces such low yields or poor 
quality that the crop is not worth picking at any reasonable price is considered as crop 
failure and is not included, in the acreage for harvest. Unharvested acreage which produces 
yields which would be harvested at reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 



YIELD - Yield refers to total production of merchantable quality produced on an acre oasis 
ancTmay include some unharvested production left in fields for economic reasons. 



PRODUCTION - Total production represents the yield times (7) the acres for harvest . Produc- 
tion of value is that part of the production whlcn' was harvested and sold or utilised and 
does not include economic abandonment. 



ECONOMIC ABANDO^IMT - This category includes mature production not harvested because of 
"economic factors, such as low prices, shortage ox labor, etc. Such loss of production in- 
cludes quantities left in fields partially harvested as well as production on acreage abandon- 
ed for economic reasons. In the production tables in this book economic abandonment is the 
difference between the total production and the production of value. 

Acreage abandoned at any stage of growth before maturity will be considered as loss of 
acreage or crop failure rather than economic aHancConment 01 production. 



A VERAGE PRIC E - All prices used in this report are on an F.O.B. basis or its equivalent, less 
selling charges. In the case of some commodities which are sold in units other than the one 
listed, these units are converted into the equivalent of the ones used. 



T O TAX VALUE - The total value is the average price per unit times (X) the production of value. 



CAFJED OR PROCESSED ACREAGE AMD PROD UCTION - The acreage of vegetables in Florida planted 
solely for canning and other processing purposes during the period covered by this publica- 
tion has been confined principally to cucumbers for pickles. The acreages of beans and 
tomatoes, the principal crops processed, are planted primarily for fresh market, but each 
year substantial quantities are canned or frozen. 

In order to show the utilization of the production from the acreage brought to harvest, 
three columns on production are used in the State Summaries. The first shows the total pro- 
duction; the second shows the production sold for fresh market consumption; and the third, 
shows the production sold for processing (either canned or frozen). Production abandoned for 
economic reasons is the total production minus the sum of the production for fresh market and 
processing. 

Those desiring to know the equivalent acreage utilized for processing should divide the 
number of bushels processed by the average yield then generally round to the nearest hundred. 
The prices given for processed beans and tomatoes are based on a per ton price and reduced -to 
a per bushel price (rounded to the nearest whole cent). 



CO^TS AITD RETURNS PER ACRE IN SELECTED ABES IK FLORIDA - This feature is contributed by the 
"Economics Department of Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations. These tables represent the 
summarization of grower records or sstirnates of costs and returns per acre from several 
vegetable crops in the major producing areas of Florida for the 1953-54 season. In so far as 
possible, growing and harvesting costs have been separated and labor items excluded from costs 
of materials* 



MI XED CAR MOVEMEN T - Total shipments of produce in mixed cars are shown by months on Page 90. 
These data include the equivalent cars shown in our regular shipment dsta, under each specific 
crop carried in this publication.
